Vanessa Simmons, 30, and long term boyfriend Mike Wayans, 28, welcomed daughter Ava Maria Jean into the world last Thursday, February 13.

This is the first child for Run D.M.C's Joseph Simmons aka Rev Run's daughter and she was nervous about telling her dad she was pregnant and single due to his beliefs:

I was so nervous telling my dad at first being that I'm not married YET but he was very excited and is supportive 100 percent. His concern is just that I'm happy," she continued. "Both families are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new baby girl. She's coming into two huge families waiting to give her lots of love."

Simmons revealed her pregnancy in September 2013 when she was already 5 months into the pregnancy and of course they were expecting a boy as reported by USweekly.

Vanessa and Mike have been together for 8 years and he is the son of actor/comedian Damon Wayans.

The Wayans are known for their huge family of boys, so little Ava will have nothing to worry about.
